10 inspirational quotes by Maya Angelou



Poet, Novelist, Humanitarian and Mentor, Maya Angelou, was born on The 4th of April in 1928.  

She has, in some way or form, had an impact on someone in their lifetime. Her quotes embody her wisdom. Which is why I have chosen 10 quotes of hers to be inspired by: 


1. ‘If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be’.’


2. ‘ Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.’


3. ‘You may not control all the events that happen to you but you can decide not to be reduced by them’ 


4. ‘If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.‘


5. ‘ When you learn, teach, when you get, give.’


6. ‘We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.’


7. ‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’


8. ‘We need much less than we think we need.’


9. ‘A wise woman wishes to be no one's enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone's victim.’


10. ‘You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I'll rise.’
